What is the cause for diverticulitis?

Diverticulitis is an inflammation of the little pouches (diverticula) in your colon. It can create a lot of abdominal pain and discomfort in the body.

Cause #1: Consuming foods that are inflammatory

If you consume a lot of refined carbs and GMO foods, as well as oils containing omega-6 fatty acids, these things can cause a lot of problems throughout the body--including the inside of your colon. This is because these types of foods create inflammation. Snacking often and consuming a lot of carbs in general will increase the quantity of insulin, an inflammatory hormone, in your blood.
